FRUIT AND NUT BREAD & FOODBUZZ TOP 9


Begin the day a whole new way with breakfast on great-tasting fruit and nut bread. Made using yeast, it can be done with almost any combination of dried fruit and nuts. Whatever you have around, raisin, cranberries, apricot, cherries, pecan, hazelnuts, walnuts and many more.

The family just loved it and I think you should to.  There is really no reason not to make it. The first loaf vanished in the wink of an eye!

FRUIT AND NUT BREAD
Yield   :   2 mini  loaves

2 C all purpose flour
2 tablespoon melted butter
1/2 C evaporated milk
1/4 C plus 2 tablespoon  hot water
1.5 tsp instant yeast
2 tablespoon sugar
1/2 tsp salt

FILLING
1 C pitted chopped date
1/2 C chopped/silvered almond

METHOD

Combine butter, evaporated milk and hot water in a small bowl.

Place flour, sugar, salt and yeast in a mixing bowl.

Pour milk mixture onto dry ingredients and forms into soft dough.

On the floured surface, knead by hand for  10  minutes until smooth.

Let rise until double in size  for 1-1.5 hours in a covered and oiled bowl.


Punch dough down. Divide dough into two. Roll each into 8 x 11 in rectangle, spread the filling leaving 1in free along the sides.


Beginning with the long edge nearest you, roll the dough into tight cylinder. Firmly pinch the seam to seal. Transfer dough onto a lightly greased  loaf pan, seam side down.  Repeat the same for the balance of the dough.

Rest the dough for 1 hour.. Towards the end of rising time, preheat oven @ 180C.

Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven. brush with melted butter.

Transfer onto rack to cool.

Using a serrated knife,  slice into 1 in thick rolls. Enjoy!

I can definitely see why the family loved this! It looks delicious and I especially love the use of dates. Why use anything else?! Since I'm not a baker, I find the use of the evaporated milk unusual. I'm curious how it changes the texture so I guess I'll have to make this and find out! :)

Akila said...
